Plant Food, All Purpose, Water Soluble

Weight: 5 lb (2.2 kg)

Directions

Easy Hose-End Feeder Directions: If soil is dry, water before applying plant food. This will help keep plant food from washing away before it's absorbed by plant roots. Load your hose-end feeder and feed all plants at the same time. Apply every 2 to 4 weeks. 150 sq ft (10 x 15 ft lawn or garden): 1 cup (6 oz). 300 sq ft (10 x 30 lawn or garden): 2 cups (12 oz). Note: Feeding with a slightly weaker or stronger plant food solution will not harm plants. Approximate square-foot measurements are acceptable. Important: When using non-clogging hose-end feeders (those without dip tubes): These types of feeders send out a stronger plant food solution at the beginning that becomes more diluted as you spray. It's important to move your feeder back and forth over the entire area you are feeding so that approximately the same amount of plant food falls on all plants in the area. Deep feeding formula! Expert Gardener All Purpose Water Soluble Plant Food contains a deep feeding wetting agent that helps water and plant nutrients penetrate deep into the soil, giving your plants a thorough feeding throughout the root zone when compared to ordinary granular fertilizers. For Use with a Soaker-Hose Feeder: Please consult your feeder's directions for the amount of plant food to use. For 0.75 oz of Expert Gardener plant food, use 6 level teaspoons. For Use with Watering Cans: Annuals & Perennials: 1 tbsp per gallon of water every 2 to 4 weeks. Tomatoes (planted in the ground): 1 tbsp per plant per gallon of water every 2 to 4 weeks. Roses: 1 tbsp per plant per gallon of water every 2 to 4 weeks. Fruits & Vegetables: 1 tbsp per gallon of water every 2 to 4 weeks. Trees & Shrubs: 1-1/2 tbsp per plant per gallon of water 3 times yearly. Containers & Hanging Baskets: 1 tbsp per gallon of water every 2 to 4 weeks. Transplants, Cuttings & Seedlings: 1/2 tsp per gallon of water at planting or every 2 weeks. Houseplants: 1 tsp per gallon of water every 2 to 4 weeks. Note: Above recommended amounts are approximate. Feeding with a slightly weaker or stronger plant food solution will not harm plants. For feeding larger areas see inside panel. 6 tsp = 0.75 oz.
